Hello everyone, my latest light bite recipe is for Tomato and Basil Bruschetta. I like to make my bruschetta with ciabatta bread but you can use whatever bread suits your preferences.

Other Light Bites

I’ve been working away on a few new recipes for Light Bites. In the next couple of weeks I’ll add in a lovely Thai Veggie Noodle Bowl recipe and a Traditional Chicken Soup. I’m also working on a new recipe for twice baked potatoes and some homemade sausage rolls.

You can get into the kitchen straight away and make one of my other light bite recipes:

Hope you find some new cooking inspiration and ideas.

One of my favourite Italian starters - Tomato and Basil Bruschetta. I've used a toasted ciabatta with garlic butter, tomatoes and fresh basil.



  1. Slice the ciabatta into three and then cut those pieces horizontally in half

  2. Add the minced garlic to three tablespoons of the olive oil and drizzle over the bread on both sides
  3. In a small bowl add the remaining olive oil to the chopped tomatoes and season to taste

  4. Tear up the basil and stir through the tomato mix
  5. Heat up a grill pan and toast the bread on both sides until golden brown
  6. Top the bread with the tomato mixture
